Reducing unnecessary work load is a key focus for our school and this is reflected in our feedback policy which is effective and time efficient, promoting student progress without over burdening staff. All teachers have their own specialist classroom, which is well-equipped including access to a visualiser and touchscreen TV. 90% of our students have their own chromebooks and all classrooms have a set of chromebooks too.

Sharing good practice is common place amongst all departments in our school and our professional learning programme will give you the chance to really think about what makes for great teaching and learning. We pride ourselves on helping great teachers become the best they can be no matter where they are in their career. ECTs with the potential to become outstanding practitioners are offered a full induction process by Maths leaders and there is a strong commitment to professional development across the team and on-going professional development. If you are ambitious and looking to take the next step we will invest in your development and offer rapid career progression for those who aspire to be become middle leaders or senior leaders of the future.
